Damn what a steal.
I missed that, super gross.
There's no precedent for giving compensation for baseball-related injuries, only death
I don't understand what violent coercion has to do with objective truth.
No offence bro, but with all the crazy crap you've been PMing people lately, no way am I clicking that.
Huh? Was al-Baghdadi captured?
Any definition that is agreed upon is more arbitrary than objective. There is no objective truth in such a matter. Trying to determine how many hairs are on a body at this exact moment is scarcely...
Let's just do a quick vote, 3 out of 5 wins it. I'm not going to lose any sleep over the results, but I vote for 20B compensation or 10B waiver compensation, owner's choice. I believe some...
I'm not sure I even agree with that. What counts as a hair? Does it have to be protruding from the skin? What about a hair that's only protruding 0.5 MM from the skin? Is that a hair? Because...
So can we talk about how gross it is that DR police tweeted a picture of his crumpled body pinned under his Jeep?
There isn't. The number of hairs on your body changes by the minute. If you somehow started methodically counting them, the number would be different from the start by the time you finished.
What is really the harm in giving a small bit of compensation? Not withstanding that this is the third time, I really don't think this is going to be a common occurrence.
Agreed. His fantasy value during 2014-2015 was comparable to Marcus Stroman now. I think based on his age and ceiling he was objectively a keeper for some team.
I didn't know he was a ginger, that changes everything.
20B seems about right to me.
I think it's a sliding scale. Assets that have no value require no compensation, but I don't think Ventura is a guy who would have ended up in the waiver draft.
Exactly. Compensation should be commensurate with trade value. What would Yordano get? A 1st? Probably not a Top 5 1st, but maybe I'm wrong.
I guess we need to discuss compensation once again.
Yeah I don't have a ton of sympathy. This guy showed violent disregard for other players and a shitty, arrogant attitude on many occasions.
He didn't pass away, he died.
He was a piece of shit, but this is a shitty way to go.
This needs its own thread.
Jesus Christ what did i start here
Who gives a fuck? They made it to the ALCS.
